8/17/18 - Speech Therapy

I played hard this morning with Mom. I love the play mat! I'm getting good at hand eye coordination stuff pretty quickly! I can kick and bat right what I want to. Now, I am working on the next thing...grabbing stuff. I reach out and touch, but I am just learning to grab things now. So, today I figured it out. I reached out and snatched up Mr.Beaver's tail and pulled it. I did it a couple times. He never knew what hit him. Sneaky guy. I didn't goober all over him today though, I had better things to do. Today, the Speech therapist came to see me. We moved the play mat and I sat up in my Boppy so she could start teaching me how to use my Nuk. I'm not sure what to do with it yet? She pressed it up in my mouth and squished my cheeks in a little. I started to chomp on the Nuk and it wasn't too bad. I started to kind of figure out how to suck on it and then I got tired and fell asleep. Ha, ha. Maybe, after a weeks worth of daily sessions with her, I will begin to get thee hang of it? I think so. Then, the next thing is food! Food, food, food! Yay!

Then, the next thing is food! Food, food, food! Yay! My bro-dude today moved my NJ tube so it's now in my tummy (NG). I am so happy. Full tummy today for the first time in a very, very long time. I felt more like a normal baby. The speech therapist said that getting more normal feeds that are scheduled and going into my tummy (instead of the continuous feeding into my intestines directly) will probably trigger me to want to suck when I feel hungry. So, that could really help. I want to try my best to get off of the NG and get to feeding like a normal baby. Hopefully from a bottle, but probably from a special sippy cup instead if i can't figure a bottle out. I'll keep you posted on all of this. It will take some time. 

I think that is all I have for updates today. Will tlak tomorrow! -Heath
